We went for a walk on the pedestrian bridge and the mayflies were swarming by the thousands all around the lamps on the bridge. Their bodies littered the pavement and fell into the river below. There, in the faint light that flickered with the shadows of the frenzied, mating insects, about 100 Canada geese + one female mallard silently paddled the rushing waters, urgently scooping up mouthfuls of mayflies.
talking about US fascism, which is really “business as usual”
Street-level fash/brownshirts, mass shootings, police murder/harassment, prisons, detention of any kind
All are machinations of the white supremacist state, and all should be understood as part of the same system that constantly lurches towards the creation of a white ethnostate.
Brownshirts and mass shootings are logical extensions of state fascist violence. Our antifascism must oppose the state and its lackeys.
today, white nationalists are descending on portland for an anti-antifa rally. the city is unified (except for the mayor and the cops) in wanting these people driven out. the president of the USA just made a statement claiming local community organizers need to be dealt with by the police, and if it's not up to his expectations he will declare the community here a domestic terror organization

Looking back over the year, i can definitely confirm that mastodon has been a positive influence on my life.
Met a lot of cool people, laughed a lot, posted photos of my ass, found friends, close friends, got me away from sites that were causing anxiety or where i was causing anxiety to others, and gave me a better understanding of my relationship to social media and addiction to such, and my own agency in the matter.
It's been more than a year since I got my first account on dot social, but almost exactly a year since I started posting regularly on account of being banned from the bird site for excessive misandry, just as I was going thru a hysterectomy
For real though y'all are wonderful & I'm so grateful this place exists!
